Making a Difference

Making a Difference. That is what the Library does every day. We strive to meet the needs of our community through after school programs, adult learning and entertainment communities, books, videos, technology and space.

Code Club begins this month on January 27th from 5 to 6:30. We are hoping for 2 volunteers to help us get started. You do not need to know how to code or even how to use a computer to volunteer. We need cheer leaders. Can you offer encouragement? Connect with a learner as they are solving a problem? You can volunteer. Stop by the Library during regular hours so we can show you what we are up to.

Why a Code Club? Code Clubs make a difference in people’s lives, too. These are fun, collaborative gatherings where problem solving, critical thinking and logic are used to create and solve challenges with bots. Coding, like reading, is a basic skill.

Adults will keep their minds sharp and gain confidence while using technology, learn the science behind their devices and yes, have fun. Young folks will learn and practice valuable life skills such as persistence, step by step problem solving, computational skills and gain future ready skills for the current job market. No one is too old to gain from learning to code.

The beauty is that Prenda makes it simple. The web based program takes the coder step by step through learning challenges. We learn a concept and put it to use right away and then continue building throughout. Each participant will have their own log in and can access it on any computer wherever they are to continue as time and interest allows.

Join us for Code Club. Come by the Library for more information during regular hours or call for an appointment.

See you Monday, January 27 from 5-6:30.

I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.
